Video games, music and football, three things I spend far too much time on. If they ever create a Dion Dublin Dube rhythm/football game my life would be complete.

The Reticule Presents Installing to Disk Episode 18 — Wii U.S.

The Reticule’s podcast is back with another action-packed episode. This time around Jordan and James discuss the recent release of the Wii U in America, wonder whether Grand Theft Auto V will manage to keep in the spirit of the series and comment on the sales of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.

As always James speaks about a classic game he’s been playing in the Retro Roundup, but unusually this week the lads have a polite disagreement over his verdict. All is settled by the time they get to Game of the Week though, where the two of them show off their best James Earl Jones impressions. So what are you waiting for?

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Beta – Preview

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Beta – Preview

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale has been in public beta since the 18th for all PlayStation Plus members and PlayStation Vita owners. It’s refreshing to see Sony thinking so pro-actively towards both of these neglected platforms. Especially considering PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale could be a potential game-changing game for Sony’s ailing handheld, since if you purchase the game on PS3 you will also receive it on Vita and both versions can play against one-another. But how does the beta hold up?

PlayStation Store Gets a Makeover

PlayStation Store Gets a Makeover

The much maligned PlayStation store has finally been updated bringing a much more TV, and hopefully, user friendly design to PlayStation’s digital service. Users can get their hands on the much sleeker, and some might suggest Xbox dashboard-looking, store through a 26 MB download that has been slowly rolled out across Europe today.  The update not only makes the store look much better but also organises content in a more logical way as well as giving more focus to the film and PS Vita stores. Another great new addition is the ability to use PayPal to add funds to your wallet, which may put the more security concious gamers at a little more ease.

The Reticule at Play Expo

Gamers — it’s a word flung about by many to try and group everyone who plays games under one banner, but how can one word describe such a vast variety of people? There are people who play games to relax, those who play professionally, those who cherish the arcades and those who will only play the latest releases. Each radically different from one another, but each one a gamer.

Play Expo, the newest videogame expo, attempts to please as many different gamers as possible with every console from the Amiga to the 3DS on show, as well as arcade and pinball machines. This year’s event was held this weekend in Manchester, and I got the pleasure of attending.
